From 1971 until about 1983, firearms dealers had a choice as to how to get Smith & Wesson handguns for stock. They could pay inflated prices, well above wholesale, or by the late 1970s they could enlist in Smith & Wesson’s Stocking Dealer programs in their Carter Era form. Under that program, for every five Smith & Wesson 1000 shotguns a dealer bought for $229.95 apiece, he would get one Model 29 for $250. We would sell the 1000s at cost or lose $10 apiece on them, and sell the 29 for $550 - $600 range pricing. The Model 1000 was made for Smith & Wesson by Howa in Japan, and all of them were such good shotguns that most of them are still serviceable, and will be for many years to come. Here is a circa 1982 Howa / Smith & Wesson model 1000-M, steel frame and 3 inch Magnum capable with one gas port instead of two. It was fairly new when Steel Shot came into usage, and its owner, a distinguished Agriculture Scientist, had its barrel cut to 26 inches and a Colonial Arms Modified Choke Tube installed. Thread specs are .795 x 44, and this tube is made by Colonial Arms, PO Box 636, Selma, Alabama 36702. This tube is the exact same thread as Remington’s Baikal Imports. The owner of this shotgun was a meticulous chemical engineer, and its moderate amount of surface detractions comes from waterfowl hunting. From the looks of the shell carrier / floorplate, we do not believe it was ever fired over 300 rounds. Finishwise, we classify it as Very Good, since it has a moderate amount of scouring and weathering to its glossy finished walnut stock and forend, and some spottiness to its receiver and other blue steel surfaces. Photos ought to suffice so that our shoppers can judge finish grade for themselves. It is excellent mechanically, and its owner maintained his firearms very, very well. Bore, threads, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. We’re offering this strong, attractive Howa / Smith & Wesson 1000-M Shotgun for only $ 369.95.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
